Blacks of Michigan are Being Ignored by Biden
With all thatâs going on in this crazy country, presidential candidates need to be careful. They need to give the different demographics plenty of attention. And right now, Michigan is feeling a bit cheated by Biden â particularly some of the black communities.
Saying and doing are two different things. Biden canât simply say that heâs with the black communities. He has to actually be with them. This is the same candidate that said that âyou ainât blackâ if you donât vote for him â and this has caused a number of black voters to turn away from him. He needs to show his love and support â yet he canât seem to do that.
One liberal documentary filmmaker, Michael Moore, has called Biden out for ignoring black voters in Michigan. He called the candidate out on a broadcast of âWeekendsâ on MSNBC. He says that every day, people complain that they canât get yard signs.
Yard signs. This is where the complaints are. Black communities want to have a sign in their yard that says theyâre voting for Biden/Harris 2020. Yet, they donât have any â and theyâre blaming Biden for not being able to get them.
Trump doesnât have that issue â and for a number of reasons. If you drive down the streets of any Republican neighborhood, youâll see Trump/Pence 2020 signs all over the yards. So, why is it that Trump can help his people but Biden canât help his?
It comes down to the lack of field houses that Bidenâs campaign has. In every state, there are places where you can go to grab some Trump campaign gear. You can pick up some yard signs, by a MAGA hat, and show your support of Trump in a number of other ways.
Biden doesnât have any people on the ground. Theyâre letting their supporters down. Those who want to vote Biden canât even get the supplies they need to rally some support. The idea of going to a print shop and having some made have clearly escaped them.
The Biden campaign tries to brush the idea away. They say that itâs the 21st Century, so theyâre going digital. Well, thatâs a problem because people are still obviously using yard signs â and the black community is feeling cheated.
Michigan is one of those battleground states, too. Biden needs to be all over the black community to ensure they feel the love. Without love, they could be easily persuaded to vote for Trump. After all, at least Trump is providing yard signs to his voters.
Hillary Clinton lost Michigan in 2016 by only two votes per precinct. And Biden could experience a similar loss â especially if he doesnât realize that the Michigan black voters are feeling shortchanged at the moment. Itâs a big risk for him to turn his back on them and still expect to get their vote in November.
Thereâs another aspect that Michael Moore pointed out â Biden has only managed to visit Michigan once throughout his entire campaign trail. He visited two towns, both that are considered âwhiteâ â one in âdownriver Detroitâ and the other in Macomb County.
The likelihood of Biden getting to the black communities of Michigan at this point are low. Heâs too busy hiding in his basement. When he does manage to come out to give a speech or visit a city, itâs an embarrassment for not only the Democratic Party but for Americans as a whole. What comes out of his mouth is anyoneâs guess at this point.
The reality of it all is that Biden and his entire campaign feels that they have the black vote in the bag. They arenât worried about the yard signs or hats. Theyâre just assuming that if people are black, theyâll vote for Biden. Meanwhile, Moore is dealing with calls on a daily basis where Black Dems want their yard sale signs.
Who knows, if they donât get their signs, they may give up and vote for the candidate with the signs â and the Trump field houses will happily supply them.
